My friend with a Euro-M5 swears by his Dunlop SP8000s. They don't do
snow, however.... Same for the P7000.

The Continentals are mediocre, probably not what you're going for.

As for the Borbets, I love them. I had a set of the type C on my 100Q 
for 2 days. The offset was wrong, and they rubbed a lot in the back,
so I returned them. This is just a note to make sure you check the
required offset.
